Starting the new year with a post

I have neglected this blog. A lot. I don’t post here much because I don’t quite know what to post.

I like to write about my adventures setting up my Apple products because I hope that my adventures might help someone else to figure out how to use their new Apple products.

I enjoyed it when I was using the blog to help motivate myself to do a drawing here and there.  Posting the drawings I was doing on my iPhone using the Brushes app was less about publishing them than it was about keeping a promise to myself to draw.

I used to write articles on my experience as a parent for a now closed site. While that was the most challenging writing experience because I had to make sure I kept enough details private when talking about my kids, it was rewarding to put my feelings into work.

As with all of these topics, I would write something and then eventually not have time to write something. WordPress would show me that folks would come to read some of the things that I wrote. That was very gratifying. Knowing that someone somewhere had read something I’d written always made me smile.

All of the above sounds like I am saying goodbye to this blog. Shutting her down. That’s actually the opposite of what I want to do. I hope to write more here this year.

I don’t have a lot of free time to write here, so I am not going to make a promise to write once a day (much as I’d like to). That is what twitter will be for. But I do promise to post at least a few times a month. I might post about my kids, or about a drawing I am working on, or even a television show I am particularly enjoying.

Mostly, I will continue to post mainly for myself. If other people read them, that will make me smile. ¬†If they don’t, motivating myself to post again will be its own reward.

Welcome to 2013!
